2021 Ribeiro Blanco, Alter, Galacia, Spain

£16.50 inc. VAT

An inviting and delicious blend of 85% Treixadura , 8% Godello and 7% Loureiro.

This family-run winery was founded by José Pérez Pousa on the banks of the Miño river in 2014, with the wish to preserve the tradition of their native land, where wine has been produced since the 2nd century BCE. The wine is named ‘alter’ to mean ‘another wine more’ in Latin.

The vines are on average 15-30 years old, planted on decomposed granite with sand and clay. The vineyards benefit from a perfect mesoclimate with good diurnal ranges particularly during the growing season ensuring the fruit is able to fully ripen while retaining fresh acidity. All harvesting is done by hand, plot by plot at the perfect moment to ensure optimum level of ripeness which elongates their harvest.

Each vineyard plot and variety were fermented separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, the cool ferment retaining the aromatic intensity of the grapes. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on its lees for three to four months to add depth before the final blend was assembled.

Vibrant yellow with elegant aromas of white flowers, green apple and pineapple on the nose. The palate is lively with fresh acidity and flavours of white peach dominating. The finish is lingering with notes of peach, honey and acacia.
